Louis Koo Tin Lok, Sean Lau Ching Wan and Philip Keung Ho Man starred in the science fiction film VIRTUS (MING YUT JIN GEI), which officially began production. The film's production cost will be over HK$ 300 million. Koo and Lau in the film will team up to battle aliens and save the Earth. Goo Jai said, "Asia has few science fiction films like this. I hope through this production I will prove that Hong Kong can make a large scale science fiction film." He even revealed that the set in the opening took over two and a half month to build.
Ching Wan also admitted that he rarely participated in science fiction films. "This time the Earth will be on the edge of death, the feeling will be much heavier." Speaking of the numerous action scenes with Goo Jai, Ching Wan said, "I have mechanical equipment to fight aliens and large robots."
The armor car driver Hak Jai said, "I look forward to make up the most, because I have to play an one eyed driver."
New actors Kevin Chu Kam Yin, Ng Siu Hin and Tony Wu Tsz Tung will participate in the same film for the first time and even be able to work with many elder actors. Thus they were very excited at the production start and even hoped that they would leave good impressions with the elders.
